My 14 yr old daughter was diagnosed with Plica Syndrome. She is a competitive swimmer and can't swim right now due to a medial right knee pain. We have tried all methods of treatment to relieve the pain. Nothing has worked. The MRI was clean with no tears or damage to any part of her knee, only show a slight edema. Our last resort besides making her quit what she loves is surgery. Have read alot of horrible outcomes that are not helping our decision to have the arthroscopy done. Anyone that can provide any info on plica removal and long term effects would be greatly appreciated.
